I’ve been a teacher, a census taker, assembled electronics, worked in IT and several other jobs. Which looks bad when I apply for a job. Am I stable? Am I a job-hopper? And so on. But for a writer, such a background is good. Because the more variety in a writer’s life, the more knowledge they posses that they can use in their writing. This applies not only to the job itself but to the broader environment of that job. I know of many differing environments and use what I know often.
So, in retrospect, I’m glad my job history has taken me around the block a couple of times even though, at the time, it didn’t seem like such a good thing.
